“Have” and “have got” are both used to indicate possession or ownership in the present tense. Have is more common in American English. Have got is more common in British English. Both forms are considered correct. However, “have got” is considered more informal and is more commonly used in spoken English, while “have” is more formal and is more commonly used in written English. For example, “I have a car” is more formal than “I’ve got a car.” Both are correct, but it depends on the context.
